The Sommarhus Akenine facade is clad in strips of Siberian larch that have been planed and treated for a smoother and more uniform appearance. The elevated terrace floor wraps around the structure to create a porch that’s partially protected from the elements by the roof overhang. Generous floor-to-ceiling glazing on the south side opens the interior up to views of the Baltic Sea, while smaller glazing strips on the shaded northern side face the forest.

Light-colored timber floors and whitewashed walls create a clean impression indoors.
